Default Re: How to sync to the phone phonebook

The main problem is that Android maps the internal phone book entries to the gmail account, so there is no way to differentate between gmail acocunt and internal phone book. Please contact Google if you're not happy with that, unfortunately we can't change this from the application's point of view.

We think this comes from the fact that Android has introduced accounts with 2.0 and there is some legacy code to access the internal phone book.

So there is currently no other way than using this gmail account, you can switch off syncing to Google Calendar (in the general settings app) if you do not like to show Google your address book.

stocks and weather are some HTC Desire specific accounts which can't be really used for contacts sync.
